These cupcakes will inspire your inner idol with miniature microphones made from an ice cream cone and a doughnut hole coated with silver sprinkles. There’s a licorice remote antenna at the base of the cone, so rock out and conquer the stage.

|24 vanilla cupcakes baked in silver or foil liners||24 plain doughnut holes|
|1 can (16 oz) plus 1 cup vanilla frosting||1 cup mini silver dragees or decorating sugas or sprinkles|
|24 mini kids' ice cream cones (Joy)||Red food coloring|
|24 pieces pink licorice pastels (Jelly Belly)|
Tint the can of vanilla frosting light pink with a few drops of red food coloring. Cover and set aside. Spoon 1/4 cup of the remaining frosting into a small ziplock bag, press out the air, seal, and set aside.
For the antenna, use a wooden skewer or toothpick to make a small hole in the base of each cone. Snip a small (1/8-inch) corner from the bag with the vanilla frosting and pipe a small dot of frosting into the hole. Insert a pink licorice pastel halfway into each hole. Pipe a line of vanilla frosting around the top inside edge of each cone. Press a doughnut hole into the opening of the cone.
Spread the tops of the cupcakes with the pink frosting and smooth. Place the cone microphones on top of the cupcakes, pressing down to secure.
